Check this “W1812” item description *PIC*

A friend bought a “War of 1812 Artillery compass” via online auction then asked me about it. Since my knowledge of both the War of 1812 and of compasses is limited, I’m posting the information from the auction site here, requesting your comments. I think the two questions that naturally arise from this are:

1. Was this item manufactured prior to or during the War of 1812?
2. Was this item an artillery accouterment?
